Simon Robinson has been appointed the new CEO of the company.

An experienced business leader, Robinson will succeed Graham Brown and assume responsibilities on April 1 2022. Graham Brown, who has made the decision to retire and spend time with his family, will leave Connect NZ on March 31 2022.

Simon Robinson joined Connect NZ in 2008 as a Business Development Manager, then soon after took the position of the Wellington Regional Manager. In the past few years Simon was appointed the National Sales Director, which makes him an ideal candidate to lead Connect NZ.

"Simon's appointment is a clear reflection of the company's current state: ready to take on the New Zealand tech market and feeling confident after another strong year of growth," General manager Keith Block says.

"There is an enormous opportunity for Connect NZ that lies ahead, and we couldn't be happier with Simon leading the team and helping us and our customers achieve continued success."

"I am honoured and proud to assume the leadership of Connect NZ, an organisation I have been with for most of my professional life. With Connect NZ's unique product offerings, and the very talented staff in the industry, I could not have been given a better starting point as a new CEO", said Simon Robinson.
